    I noticed this as well. At first I thought my aging taste buds where beginning to fail me, but I'm glad somebody else has confirmed my opinion.

    Buckhead's in Newport / Bellevue has really good chili.

    Zip's has AWESOME chili, I don't care if it is 1 billion degrees Kelvin, I'm still ordering a bowl of their chili on any visit to Zip's.

    Pee Wee's in Crescent Springs has good chili.

    When Shakey's was in Florence, they had great chili.

    For fast food, or in need of speed and a drive thru, I find Wendy's chili perfectly satisfactory.

    I’m shocked at the love Wendy’s chili is getting. Due to finances, I almost lived off that stuff on road trips during my college baseball career. I haven’t eaten it since 1992 and will never eat it again.

    You forgot to put cheese and fries at the end of your post.

    I go with one of my "bigger buddies" and he kills it.

    Like the majority of food you find available on 3rd shift, they're great going down but dangerous afterwards.

    I know some of you mentioned it but I think Wendy's is solid.

    The two best I've ever had:
    - Varallo’s, Nashville.
    - Barney's Beanery, Pasadena.


    If I'm really craving it and don't want to make it, I've been known to hit up Wendy's.

    I’m with you on that.

    Great reminder, there is a place in Harper's Point called Skip's Deli (or something like that), they have an awesome White Chicken Chili.

    I was a Wendy's employee years ago as a teenager. You might change your opinion on the chili if you knew the source of the meat (or at least what it was back then). Let's just say the meat is not as fresh as what you would get in a burger.

    Yep. I worked there too. Can't eat the stuff.

    Prefer my homemade chili, but when it's cold outside and we're on the way to games, I'll go for Wendy's or Steak-n-Shake.
